Description

Notice to PSPC’s landlords and building managers

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an unprecedented impact on the health of Canadians. COVID-19 vaccines are a critical tool to reduce the risk of COVID-19 and protect broader public health.

As a responsible employer, the Government of Canada is committed to protecting the health and safety of its employees. On October 6, 2021, the Government of Canada (GC) announced mandatory COVID-19 vaccination across the federal public service. These measures will contribute to reaching the overall levels of vaccination that Canada needs to sustain a resilient economic recovery in the face of more transmissible and dangerous COVID-19 variants of concern.

In alignment with this important policy measure, all persons accessing premises leased by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC), including landlord personnel (e.g. employees, contractors and subcontractors) must have attested to being fully vaccinated in order to access the leased premises. This requirement takes effect on November 15, 2021.

Landlords should take the necessary steps to ensure that their employees, contractors and subcontractors are aware of this requirement, and that they are able to fully comply with it.

This approach will ensure that federal workplaces and the buildings in which they are located are kept safe, and that all personnel who work in them are protected.

Additional information on this requirement can be found HERE, and PSPC will provide instructions on how landlords can attest to their commitment to ongoing compliance as it becomes available.
